In the context of Knowledge Society, the convergence of knowledge and learning management is a critical milestone. Intelligent Learning Infrastructure for Knowledge Intensive Organizations: A Semantic Web Perspective provides state-of-the art knowledge through a balanced theoretical and technological discussion. The semantic web perspective helps readers understand the new era of intelligent learning infrastructures in knowledge intensive organizations. Knowledge management, learning management, e-collaboration, intelligent tutoring and learning systems, ontologies, semantic web technologies, corporate learning, integrative knowledge portals, distributed knowledge and learning repositories, peer-to-peer technologies are discussed in a holistic way providing a reference book for the research area.
